From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Rebecca Miller (born September 15, 1962) is an American film director, screenwriter and actress, most known for the films Personal Velocity: Three Portraits, The Ballad of Jack and Rose and Angela, all of which she both wrote and directed.

Miller was born in Roxbury, Connecticut, the daughter of playwright Arthur Miller and photographer Inge Morath. She studied art at Yale University and initially pursued an acting career, gaining parts in the films Regarding Henry and Consenting Adults. In 1995, she shifted behind the camera, writing and directing her first film, Angela. The film was critically well-received, but did not garner significant attention or audiences.

Miller had markedly more success with her 2002 film Personal Velocity: Three Portraits, an adaptation of Personal Velocity (ISBN 080211699X), a collection of short stories she had published the previous year. The film gained a reasonable cinematic release for an arthouse film, won her a large number of awards, including the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival and largely established her name as a director. Her two most recent projects have been the 2003 book A Woman Who... (ISBN 1582343535) and the 2005 film The Ballad of Jack and Rose.

Miller married actor Daniel Day-Lewis in 1996, and the couple have two young children.
